The Single Driver Install exe is used to install an own driver (EasyIP for Festo IPCs). The installation program works properly for V.5.42 and V5.50 but not for V6.00. An error pops up saying that the citect.cnt file cannot be found. 

This is the index for the Citect help files in Version 5.50 and earlier (citect.hlp file). The driver install tries to add a section for the new driver to the help files. However, Version 6 uses chm help files rather than hlp files. Since the installer cannot find the correct file the install fails.

The workaround is to create dummy files in the Citect\BIN directory for Version 6.00. Name the files citect.hlp and citect.cnt.
